Lindsey Smith, originally from New Braunfels, TX, was a junior Public Relations major. Friends describe her as someone who lived life to the fullest and had many friends. She was passionate about dancing and the drama club. Friend Eric Schinske recalls that Lindsey was a person that would just light up the room and is dearly missed.
Brittany Jackson, ACU student and writer for the ACU Optimist, recalls that the weeks following the accident, the campus was solemn and it seemed as though everyone was searching for answers.
Since Lindsey's passing, her friends set up a fundraiser dance called the Red Boot Roundup in order to gather funds for a scholarship in Lindsey's name. The scholarship will help fund study abroad programs, the drama club, as well as some of the other interests that Lindsey had.
